studio is. now. all over the world will gather in the russian capital to discuss. what. created twenty years ago to deal with emergency situations worldwide the new body approved its efficiency very quickly one of its operations was so difficult it's made it into the guinness book of records since then has been improving its reputation in russia. working in different locations it has accumulated unique know
10:31 pm
how that it's now ready to share. says the forum. is also a great opportunity to gain valuable experience from their foreign colleagues. the first time that russia. representing. the gathering is taking place in moscow. regarded as a sign of international recognition. convening in moscow for the first time and the fact that it's been held in moscow certainly sort of a recognition of russia over the past twenty years during which natural disasters jointly with the international community so. and we
10:32 pm
hope that a second and third forum will follow while they be held in moscow to know these are international gatherings or rescuers and firefighters it's like international youth passwords which are used to have in the past the meeting every year which is the way it's not necessarily maybe every year or every two years but it will be held regularly so there's going to be regular exercises will be held at the emergency ministry training ground on the sidelines of the forum to demonstrate our skills and abilities what russian technologies are you going to demonstrate and how exactly are you going to surprise your foreign colleagues first to all will demonstrate high emergency two colleges which we use when it's necessary to rescue people and extinguish fires this is russian aviation complexes are robots and one clear or so who participate in relief operations. so we see everything that can save human lives in this way or another. but the mission was it
10:33 pm
necessary to demonstrate these technologies to foreign colleagues it isn't that they don't have similar technologies to meet or do you just want to show them that russia also has advanced. no certainly not will very well what kind of technologies and equipment our colleagues abroad have on the one hand this demonstration is a chance to share experience and on the other hand this is a possibility for us to advance our innovations on the world market and we've learned from our own experience that this is necessary for rescue operations but. tell me mr grossman when you talk about innovations do you mean some specific piece of equipment such as a vehicle a saw or radar or is it a technology an organizational aspects. of these or it you can always use because a good song in itself will be just an ordinary tool without a person cooperate so that's why we're go into focus on technology. we're not going
10:34 pm
to just demonstrate a helicopter or such will demonstrated in combination with an eel someone his six year of craft to give her and they create the global radius technology new aircraft airlift a helicopter to any part of the world where the helicopter will then carry out rescue reconnaissance or other operations but this is our technology. as far as i know the russian emergencies ministry is a member of the international civil defense organization it's an advisory body but i've talked to your colleagues including the minister many times there's an opinion that a supra national emergency situations reaction center a kind of international emergencies ministry should be set up are you going to discuss this question edge in moscow for him. do you think this idea will be implemented in the near future or not. well naturally the forum is ready to hold a free to use caution on any subject the most urgent theme in
10:35 pm
a source of universal concern he's hard to make our world safe for he turns off catastrophes in natural calamities that are striking now. some of our international partners have even refused to attend the forum they say that about two million people in india are being stranded in the flood stricken areas. this is what worries us. but practically interest will certainly provoke a discussion of we should unite our efforts or to fill in the they came in sphere is where the work of rescuers and firefighters has been insufficient you should get united this is what the forum is going to discuss what do you mean by uniting efforts that is it new choices can switch co-existed the moment or is it the creation of a supra national body like the world government a center that's going to monitor the global situation. with the you know we are totally void of such credit conditions because. there is the united nations the
10:36 pm
european union in europe korea the shanghai cooperation organization for example that there are plenty of such platforms which cover the entire world but we are talking about him i told him details that make a rescue operation more energetic and effective and help avoid intermissions in our rescue work this is what we have learned from our prop tickle experience if you are finding a fire you cannot make it a fifteen minute commercial break this work should never interrupt this soon or it starts the better with people is exactly the same we all know the parameters of saving people after earthquakes there is a chance to find survivors only in the first two hours after an earthquake and after that the only thing rescuers can do is to clear away the rubble that is why we are not going to discuss this issues in bureaucratic terms will think of how to complete international mechanisms with
10:37 pm
a more efficient actions to college years or more persistent information sharing which may result in some large scale managerial solutions in again i would not use the word global name maybe or regional for example the latest that we usually use just said that you are avoiding the bureaucratic on the dishes but for a professional and bishan is the russian emergencies ministry has plenty and i know that your colleagues are proud of being nearly the best service in the world but still is there anything which the russian ministry of an urgency situation can still learn from foreign colleagues use. previously of course the results can you tell us about it in more detail. well first of all we have a program for preparing our central. rescue team which will take a special pride india to undergo an international test we want this team to be all recognised is the most efficient unit have
10:38 pm
a rescue team it should be allat on the international list of top priority teams. we are learning from other teams of such status and i believe our team will pass this test too with the owners clash a little on. all right what about the vice versa process does the russian emergency ministry teach professionalism for the countries in your sleep of course it does and they know very well what they can learn from us. and they dress us persistently asking us to teach a there are people and so we do. for instance so we have classes for a vietnamese rescue or skin against you also we train rescuers you know higher and secondary education institutions and in different centers for firefighters or rescuers and so on which of if we teach her colleagues you know other countries as
10:39 pm
well and for instance we are opening intense classes in serbia for all balkan states i can mention a driving school in rwanda even though it was in the heart of africa on september the first there was a long line of young men who wanted to lay down their guns and learn to do it peaceful job of rescuers. training is a mutual pro says sometimes we were in and take tests and sometimes we teach others to me more take firefighters for instance which. most far fighters sold the see another nearby countries such as the bolduc states in eastern europe had to learn far fighting tactics in the soviet union which he did so and today they were saying that those step to really worry about the. foreign colleagues receive any practical training and the emergency ministry teams in russia. can one just come
10:40 pm
home and find a vietnamese fireman extinguishing a fire at their place. well first of all it's not that scary i have to say are companies that are some i know it isn't but people may get surprised. and secondly we learn and take born in exercises together moreover we participate to gether in search and rescue and fire extinguishing humanitarian operations and we're always happy to meet our graduates there as we know there are partners. who send their workers to learn from their us or our chinese colleagues. and we certainly turn to our country's main and. we are mostly interested in the experience of the g. eight countries also we like original classes for instance seemed a poor has a good training base who are her colleagues from patients states who get together
10:41 pm
to learn we don't just learn their standards so we also learn working in particular conditions which our colleagues demonstrate to us a pretty good of course. says he but i think a director of the international department at the russian ministry spotlight will be back shortly after a break so we'll continue this interview in less than a minute stay with. nineteen thirty eight england and france try to reason with hitler germany demands of the to land and gets its way they all thought been traded a safety net for themselves nineteen thirty nine the whole of europe is and gulf war efforts to establish
10:42 pm
a system of collective security nine hundred thirty eight failed and it's still on the agenda or and the lesson has to be learned from the munich agreement on our t.v. . every month we give you the future we help you understand how will get there and what tomorrow brings the best in science and technology from across russia and around the world join us in our technology update on our g.
10:43 pm

10:44 pm
having a rough time with the landslides but they will send some more presented gives anyway to go also some african states didn't send their workers even if it didn't they have some terrible floods in europe how did they cope cope with. for instance friday we signed a compilation agreement with croatia of course and we invited them to the forum so we left croatia on friday and the next year huge flood began and is a group was filled with water because it was there for a colleague says thank you but we cannot come now. is the russian emergency ministry working in any other countries at the moment and it certainly is can you tell us where in china india and pakistan know nocturnally we are participating in three largest humanitarian operations presently as for pakistan we have already sent emergency help there now we are beginning the deployment of the second stage
10:45 pm
of the operation but of the report will continue sending chance some medicines and other supplies and we'll do it in cooperation with our. professional partner with the international civil defense organization that you mentioned. also we participated in new york call to help we support the world health organization and the united nations office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs these are our partners oversee the entire international response framework. and the third stage of the operation starts today in serbia our minds have just finished working through our rescue workers are ready to respond we have current projects for supplying food for instance we're being sending flour and other supplies into armenia as well as through g q stan and afghanistan.
10:46 pm
as the director of the international department give us a number of countries that the emergency ministry has helped over the past year. if not the fifteen countries do you mean in two thousand and nine or in two thousand and ten i mean in two thousand and ten. you held fifteen countries already yes we have and we are marking our twentieth anniversary now well let's look at the history of the russian and the ministry in a report by spotlights to me that. fifty thousand lives will last in armenia in the speak talk earthquake more than twenty years ago. it was destroyed the rescue operation was chaotic so that efficiency one treaty for disaster on the scale us some was learned the decision was made to create
10:47 pm
a special rescue workers now which is considered to be one of the best in europe if there's an emergency situation in any part of the world max perutz for assistance. christmas two thousand and four tsunami is heat in countries killing more than two hundred twenty five thousand people a russian rescue helicopter helped search for survivors and planes brought more than one hundred fifty tons of humanitarian aid to the devastated region when new orleans was hit by hurricane katrina was there to help in the off tomato one of the west natural disasters in america's the story russian risk is delivered more than sixty tons of humanitarian aid to the hurricane victims. the russian rescue team also to find a needle creations in myanmar two years ago when the country was heated by a tropical cycle which killed at least seventy eight thousand people and left thousands more homeless this year the russian hospital was sent to haiti to help
10:48 pm
victims of the earthquake the doctors there performed around fifty operations russian psychologists also helped survivors cope with the shock of the work of the russian rescue organizations humanitarian missions virtually covers the world each year and more than one hundred thousand people that's the equivalent of russian teams seven twelve people in our. lives. looking back over the history of three was there a particular rescue operation which are people still remember as the most difficult legendary something or do you consider every new operation that's ahead of you to be the hardest one. of course every emergency situation is unique in its own way and the same applies to your operations. during the past twenty years there for more than three hundred twenty operations in other countries which included
10:49 pm
humanitarian operations school search and rescue operations medical health and of accusation and fire extinguishing food of course. we specially remember our first operations in the early one nine hundred ninety s. immediately after our agency was established we became involved in the ancient national response system. and actually we surprised everyone when we beat many european countries and showed up in syria in response to the un call for help if the well ahead of many other countries that were involved in the operation he's going to chose the story that if you go in one thousand nine hundred ninety three we signed an agreement with the office so the united nations high commissioner for refugees. we learned from experience self swedish and german crews. we saw that things were going bad in yugoslavia and they had the war
10:50 pm
ahead the battle in vancouver and bressie g.'s and of course russia couldn't stay away from it wouldn't just send supplies here we said would it fully participating in the humanitarian operation. we made our decision in december the government approved it in january and in early february or in the crew when we departed from the ganske. of course we selected professionals who knew how to drive in the mountains they arrived in belgrade loaded their trucks immediately and two days later they were unloading them in syria of a book aided city that really needed humanitarian aid food in the made a sense to literally save people from perishing or to you know were given our current drove through the mountains in the cold of winter and along the way they helped this swedish team and there were vehicles that were stuck because we had
10:51 pm
come us six by six trucks with great drivers so on the one hand. this is how you establish close ties with colleagues from other countries and on the other hand the un declared immediately that they couldn't do without the russian crew any more and indeed for the next afford to seventy years we were doing un tasks all the time but we were delivering aid to the most difficult areas of the closed and comm swer battles were reaching across the front lines and so on representing the us such was our first experience that began in one thousand nine hundred three so this is soyuz headlines does the russian emergency ministry rescues twelve people in our charge that makes for one person in every five minutes or over three hundred people a day that's true and i believe it is does that mean russia is such an unsafe
10:52 pm
country. that on into all countries our according to the international statistics our country doesn't stand out in comparison pakistan for example has twenty million people in the flood risk zone that's a big number. and russia fires were the main threat last summer for the forest fires the bog fires there was the smog this proved that prevention is probably more crucial than rescue the emergency ministry is an extremely efficient structure. why won't it take the job of preventing such catastrophes or is it whether to do so. but if we are ready to do so prevention is one of our key tasks actually along with eliminating the consequences of disasters and much there are other sectors in american isms that should be functioning along with the
10:53 pm
prevention system of the russian emergency ministry indeed in those four years demonstrated the need for it to come prehensile approach both at the national and international levels. but we did receive significant assistance from other countries during this period he was naturally more entitle to speak about international aspects in studios were helped by those advanced technologies that you mentioned to you from going to we gratefully received assistance from the air forces of many other countries and we look at that and russia's launch territory requires more bile equipment than the aircraft that can be here to do somewhere else tomorrow helping to stop fires as they approach c.d.'s and other important infrastructure rob ships them so the international community in
10:54 pm
our case saw that it is very efficient to invite a specific aid. because you know we'll take tsunami for instance with they were asking for any kind of help anyone as they objectively needed it there but here in the european part of russia we were grateful for advanced technologies and indeed they sent us a very experienced crew is that we're just side by side with our foreign men but if they sent aircraft and helicopters that were working in food coordination with already or forces thank you thank you very much for being with us and just to remind that my guest in this thing here today was national come direct to the end of the rest. department of the russian and the agency's ministry and that's it for the hour from all of us here if you want to have your soon spotlight quiet someone morning to you think i shouldn't do next time to talk to lynette old enough as. are
